Free! Thats right folks - TOTALLY FREE!!!
Well if you didn't gamble it was. This show was in the Mohegan Sun Casino's Wolf Den. There are about 250 seats inside the club and the casino wraps around it. Very easy to see a show while gambling. (If you can get over the dingdingding of the machines)
I had a fun night. I ran into some old friends I hadn't seen in a while and from the buffet before to the irish pub pints after the show, it was a good night out. For a Sunday night in CT, this was awesome.
Mr. Trucks and team played a nice set. Mrs. Trucks was a nice surprise and a sweet Sugaree to pull me away from the nearby video poker machine for a closer view.
I saw the couple on stage together a few years ago, at the Gathering of the Vibes. Do they ever have guitar battles? My moneys on Susan.
The band talked and signed stuff, until everyone who wanted to say hello, got to.
Oh yeah - the show was soulful, heartfelt and this is a nice recording of it. I'll have to start bringing my dat to the casino.
